About the slipover:
Summer is a short slipover with a slimfit look. The slipover can be knit and worn as a summer top. The slipover is knit in a textured pattern made by lifting off some of the sts without knitting them.
At the bottom there is a folded edge of st sts and narrow ribbed edges at neckline and armholes.
